Leading Testing as a Service (TaaS) provider, 1health, recently announced that it has partnered with SkyWest Airlines, a SkyWest Inc. subsidiary, to provide two types of COVID-19 tests to the airline’s personnel.

Mehdi Maghsoodnia, CEO at 1health, reportedly said that they aim to make testing simple and affordable for all by building the first technology infrastructure that transforms testing into service, enabling their partners to start testing in a matter of few days.

The firm will deliver two of its COVID-19 tests to SkyWest. One is a simple saliva test that can be self-administered at any place and is non-invasive. The saliva collected in a tube is sealed with reagents and sent in a safe envelope to a certified lab, following which the test results are available on the company's HIPAA-compliant patient portal within 48 hours of the lab getting the sample.

The other being Antigen Nasal Swab Test, which is fast and painless, with results available in 10 minutes in person or via the HIPAA-compliant patient portal, sources cited.
